Re: Lenovo G505s - question about upgrading RAM memory

Hi subhamzzz , 

 

Welcome to the Lenovo Community Forums.

 

Genral specifications for G505s :

- DDR3 / DDR3L * 2 SODIMM, 1600 MHz.
- Dual channel for AMD Richland
- Upgradeable to 32 GB Memory with two 16 GB SODIMMs

 

Lenovo recommend RAM listed on the hardware manual (item 16 page 83-84).

Regarding third party reseller options , best to check with specific manufacturer Corsair to match advantages of the higher priced RAM from a cheaper value of their product.

 

This may include heat spreaders , backward compatibility and auto detect speed technology offered in vengeance.

 

Sticking with OEM recommendation is still the best option but do not limit users to their choice as long as those choice works for them. 

 

Hope this help answer your query.

 

Regards

Hi subhamzzz , 

 

During upgrades , it would be best to get the manuafacturer's recommendation. 

RAM listed on the hardware manual (item 16 page 83-84).

 

To choose between Corsair vengeance CMSX4GX3M1A1600C9 against Corsair value select , personally Corsair Vengeance have lower latency so data communication is better.

Re: Lenovo G505s - question about upgrading RAM memory

@spidey101

you mention that it is possible to get 32GB RAM, but then when asked specifically which model, you make reference to the manual that only mentions modules of 8GB ram which I understand are two for a total of only 16GB.

 

Am I wrong?

 

In other words which are the best modules available on the market to reach 32GB RAM for G505s?
